, so vote for mitt romney, right? i don't think so. today romney launched a new ad campaign. according to the "washington post," greg sargent, this new 60-second television ad, well, it's going to replace all english-language romney ads in nine states. it's another attempt to soften romney's image. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> he's sticking up for president obama. that's kind of cool, isn't it? romney hopes this video will have an impact. but there's another video affecting romney's campaign in a very much bigger way. >> and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. >> it is brutal. the hidden fund-raiser video where romney disparaged 47% of americans is not helping with swing voters. it's also hurting romney with his base. "the new york times" talked to a worker, kenneth myers, an unemployed republican from ohio. romney's comments didn't sit well with myers. "the last thing, where
o'reilly thinks he's got romney's problem figured out. >> the problem mitt romney has right now is a perception that he's out of touch with the folks. the president has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on ads stating that and the governor does come across as a classic rich guy. it's tough to picture him super sizing his meal at mcdonald's. >> this is the old fashioned analysis that he's out of touch. i think charles's point trumps all of this that really what is coming across to people, he's not competent. that is possibly the worst thing that could come across. >> i was waiting for charles to say the word loser. the thing is for romney not only does it calcify among the electorate -- >> loser. i would never go that far. >> loser is deadly in a campaign because it starts to affect donors. nobody wants to put money behind a lowester. it starts to affect the media's impression of you. it becomes a metastasizing cancer in any campaign. the only thing i would take issue with is that i think people do know what they think he would do. that's the other problem. when you look add
, and they're screeching about how the polls are rigged. romney's people know they're in big trouble, right? down about ten in ohio. even the fox news poll shows romney losing in a lot of these swing states. they understand they're in trouble. do they believe they've got a chance to turn it around? >> they do and they do. they know they're in trouble and they -- you know, they have tried a little bit to play the polls or bias game in the last couple days. but pretty half-heartedly as far as i can see. you know, they argue that they're within the margin of error in ohio. a lot of people don't really understand how margin of error works. so you can be pretty far behind and still be within the margin of error because it applies to both candidates. when something says a 4.5% margin of error, they'd have to be nine points apart. they realize they are significantly down in ohio, they're significantly down in the swing states. they know that -- they think that governor romney, the ad yesterday, they were very happy with. they think it was very -- a very effective ad. they think that they're sharpe
is not far ahead and saying mitt romney is going to do just fine. right now the numbers show that mitt romney is trailing. and our polls in florida by point -- florida by 2 points and ohio by a point. he does have some ground to make up but very little. >> i want to be very very clear here. in the rasmussen poll in florida, the president is up by 2, not 10. 2. >> correct. >> bill: and ohio n. ohio the president is up by 1. both within a margin of error a dead heat. >> those polls are just taken over a week ago. they may have shifted in the president's favor, a lot of the numbers have in the last week or so. we are seeing a very close race in those states within the margin of error. these are states that mitt romney absolutely has to win. >> >> bill: when will you have new polling from florida and ohio? >> next week. >> okay. doctor, you have heard i think both rove and morris were pretty -- they made a pretty good case. that the polling we saw today isn't accurate and but it does have a definite effect on the perception of the presidential race. what do you say? >> well, i think karl rove mad

, the president, i think to do it again. how does the romney campaign respond to that? >> reporter: that's right. if president obama were to win the state of virginia because no democrat had won it since lyndon johnson in 1964, he would be the first democrat to do it twice in a generation. so obviously it is a big challenge for the president to try to win this critical battleground state one more time. that's why mitt romney is in the state today trying to take it away from him. this state, let's be honest about this, is very critical in terms of putting together the electoral map that the romney campaign needs to win this election. and it was no surprise to see both of these campaigns going back and forth over issues of national defense. mitt romney was here just about an hour ago talking about this and talking about those looming defense budget cuts that are coming as part of that fiscal cliff that we all have been talking about coming up at the end of the year. mitt romney said he would make sure that those cuts are not put into place where, if he becomes president, we'll reverse those cuts o
blow a gasket on the left if romney wins. they're also early voting going on right now. we know that this stuff is not reported to reflect opinion, they're trying to shape opinion with these polls. >> greta: is rush right? are these polls slanted toward democrats and toward president obama? let's bring in our expert panel. steve, first to you. number one, are the polls slanted in number two, the second part of the question, does that suppress the vote? >> look, i think if you're just looking at "the new york times"/cbs poll, you believe everything you see in the polling of florida and ohio today, the results that came out today, yes, i think they oversampled democrats. i don't think there's any question about it. it would mean a record turnout in those states to produce the kinds of results we saw. now that doesn't mean these polls are useless. if there's consistent oversampling inside a poll, like the cbs/"new york times" poll has been, plus eight or nine for democrats, so you can see trends inside of that, even if they're oversampling. so they're not useless, but if that's all

. we told you about the brand new poll showing that that man in swing state of ohio is amitt romney by 10 percent. but are they really swinging toward the president? or is there skewing going on by the left-based main stream med yampt a number of people on the right feel that there is something, a polster media polling bias and what they do, they sample more democrats than republicans and naturally the democrats will wind up with the vote. why will they do that? one perhaps to keep mitt romney's donors from coughing up more cash and keep people from doing early voting. >> gretchen: the idea is why do they weight it one way to the other. they base it on the turn out in the last election cycles. they see more democrats came to the polls they weight it to democrats as opposed to the republicans and defendants. >> steve: what about 2010 and the land slide with the republicans winning be you when mr. obama had a highly motivated base of young people and latinos? which model do you follow. >> brian: we'll listen to karl rove and then we'll talk. >> when news agencies like the cbs news rep
debt and use the rest for some nation building right here at home. it's time for a new economic patriotism, rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong, thriving middle class. read my plan. compare it to governor romney's, and decide for yourself. >> again, this is a two-minute ad, unusually long in politics these days. the president goes on to promise to create more than 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years if he is re-elected. >> mitt romney also stumps today at a campaign event with veterans, as he continues to get questions about his compassion for the middle class and struggling americans. romney in an interview with nbc news pointed to his universal health care law, passed when he was massachusetts governor, saying, "i think throughout this campaign as well, we talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record." but he
is you lose time and if you want to switch to a sports analogy, right f obama leads by a touchdown, so to speak, in the first quarter it doesn't mean much. but we are in the fourth quarter and romney just maybe fumbled giving obama interception again. nothing impossible but you need a couple of good breaks. >> many predictions fail. nate silver, thank you. >>> coming up, celebrity, power, success and the importance of helping others. my all-star panel at the clinton global initiative. [ male announcer ] every day, thousands of people are choosing advil®. here's one story. i'm sean. i switched to advil® 10 months ago. biking can be really tough on the lower back and your upper thighs. you have some nasty aches and pains. i really like advil® because it takes care of it all. neck ache, shoulder pain and definitely lower back pain. i use advil® because my wife, she's a nurse, she recommended it. [ male announcer ] make the switch. take action. take advil®. and if pain keeps you up, sleep better with advil® pm. and if pain keeps you up, romney: "it's time to stand up to the cheaters"
, are they kidding themselves? >> well, i think that's internal to the romney campaign, i don't even know those numbers but i can tell you the two ads we just saw are engaging on the right topic for the american t voters. a business round-table last week had a meeting. our ceo said it privately and then publicly yesterday, we released a big drop, third sharpest drop in expect i guess so as of ceos on sales and hiring than we've seen in ten years. the economy is not good and for the candidates for the presidency to be talking about competing growth agendas, that ought to be good ground for romney. >> why is that message not getting out? what has he done that's not been effective? >> i don't know. maybe taxes, tapes, conventions. >> 47%, yeah? >> no, i think what he is, this is a long time in this campaign. i believe with governor kasich. before governor of 1990, the weekend before in the front page of the paper said i would lose 54-40. these polls are not what voters are thinking often and i say let these candidates engage on the economic issues. governor romney can't win on those issues, he won
